The Puritii Air Purification System (APS) was designed to remove particles from the air with extreme efficiency. When PRIIME Essential Oils are diffused using the Aroma-Ace diffuser, they are turned into tiny droplets that float in the air, making it possible to smell them when you inhale. These droplets will be filtered out of the air when they pass through the Puritii APS, however, this does not mean they can't be used at the same time.
When using the Aroma-Ace diffuser, the essential oil molecules remain suspended in the air within a range, from 2-3 feet off the ground up to about 6 feet high, depending on which oils you are diffusing. The Puritii APS pulls air into the unit from ground level, where most of the oil molecules are not, therefore leaving more of the oils still in the air.
Two methods we have found to be effective are to 1) place your PRIIME diffuser on top of the Puritii APS, and 2) place your PRIIME diffuser on the opposite side of the room you are cleaning with the Puritii APS.
By placing the diffuser on top of the Puritii APS, you diffuse your PRIIME Oils into pure air so when you breathe in, you get the full effect of the oil without the common contaminants that you typically inhale simultaneously. Furthermore, because the APS blows clean air out of the top of the unit, you will be helping to circulate and distribute your oils throughout the room.
An alternative strategy is to place the PRIIME diffuser on the opposite side of the room from the APS. Air cleaners, including the APS, work by circulating and diluting poor air with clean air. Because it takes some time to circulate all of the air in the room, running a PRIIME diffuser from the opposite side of the room will create a distribution of oil in the air even while the APS is cleaning it.
